Ravens Place Three On IR, Waive Two

From: BaltimoreRavens.com

Former second-round draft pick Dwan Edwards, an integral part of the Ravens’ rotation on the defensive line, was one of three players placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday, as the team trimmed its roster down to 75 players.  Edwards was joined on IR by linebacker Terrence Melton and nose tackle Kelly Talavou, while the Ravens waived wideout Darnerian McCants and tight end Aaron Walker. Edwards, who is coming off the most productive campaign of his four-year career, made 13 starts and posted a career-high 58 tackles filling in for Trevor Pryce, who missed games with a broken wrist and a torn pectoral muscle.

    The Ravens cut down to the 75-man limit is relatively painless since only five players are dismissed from the 80-man active roster. It is the next roster cut by this Saturday that involves twenty-two players that is very painful. The following is one man’s opinion on the final makeup of the 53-man squad:

    QUARTERBACKS (3)
    John Beck, Joe Flacco, Troy Smith
    (with Kyle Boller on injured reserve)

    RUNNING BACKS (6)
    Le’Ron McClain, Willis McGahee, Lorenzo Neal, Allen Patrick, Ray Rice, Corey Ivy
    (with PJ Daniels on injured reserve)
